Jay:Good for you! I heard the last experience was not what you’d wished for.
Alex:Yeah, I joined this street theatre company for a while, but the quality of their productions was not so great and I had to quit so I may live to fight another day.
Jay:You know what they say, a stumble may prevent a fall.
Alex:Yes, it’s true. Anyway, I wanted to ask you for a recommendation.
Jay:Glad to give you one. Whom shall I address it to?

Alex:Great, thank you, Jay!
